Silver Rocks Rejoicing !

I did something just for myself today.

I dove back into art journaling.

I have been missing it for a long time.

I have been realizing that I have let quite a few tools to my own well-being fall by the way side. 

I have also realized that it is feeling like time to pick some of them back up ! Maybe since Mercury is no longer in retrograde as of today, I am entering a new phase too ? ;)

I began with an hour of play with spray ink, acrylic paint, permanent marker, old papers, imaginings, words and of course, rocks.

Here's where it took me today...




I am liking this new page a lot ! I think I many see a series of these Rock Being pages. Paint what your soul knows, right ? 

I am also liking the "Found Poetry" addition - words that kind of randomly came together so perfectly here from a page of an old encyclopedia.
 
My soul sister Marit from Marit's Paper World (http://www.maritspaperworld.com/blog/) 
has begun sharing her found bits on her blog every Friday and I think I will add my journal pages to the fun.

                                           

Another amazing soul sister, Lisa from Sacred Circle (http://www.sacredcirclecreativelife.com ) 
has been sharing an inspiring and heart-touching series in her GREAT BIG SUMMERTIME BLOG HULLABALOO. Lisa herself and many other talented, creative souls have been offer up wisdom, love and tales of sweet life to help us through the chaos this being human can be. I am featured there today with a post I did about being a beach loving round girl. You can check it out here: http://www.sacredcirclecreativelife.com/hullabaloo/be-me-now/ .

I am inspired to be good to me today. What could be better ? I hope you find some similar inspiration, Beautiful Ones. We so deserve it !

Happy Tuesday !

Kim,

What a wonderful page, a continuation of the other art you have been doing. That seems perfect. The water color background makes me want to jump right in. Saw your post on SacredCircle, just fabulous. I love found poetry, haven't done it in awhile though. Have a wonderful day.
